Functional Genomics (FunGen) is a group of research engineers whose objective is to provide support to the C3BI and the Institut Pasteur (IP). FunGen provides IP’s scientific community a high level of expertise in several bioinformatics domains.
We mainly analyse -omics data derived from high throughput sequencing (HTS) projects: from raw sequences to the gene (and protein) function. Our goal is to help scientists disentangle the complex relationship between genotype and phenotype at different scales: from single mutations to complete genomes. Our main areas of expertise include :
- structural and functional annotation
- comparative genomics
- genome fluidity and evolution
In addition to these services and research activities, we are highly involved in several collective tasks, including the development and maintenance of the Hub’s projects management system (BISTRO), and a seminar management tool to disseminate C3BI’s seminar’s information. Finally, we coordinate and actively participate in many of C3BI and IP courses.
